The Old Green House, Vilnius

4.2
#7 of 36 in Museums in Vilnius
One of the centers of the Vilna Gaon State Jewish Museum, The Old Green House represents the Holocaust as experienced in Lithuania. Exhibits tell the story of the genocide of Lithuanian Jews during World War II, which saw their number fall from 240,000 in 1941 (including refugees from Poland) to just 10,000 in 1945. Learn about the killing squads, concentration camps, and ghettos rife with disease and starvation that caused this stark decline in population. The exhibit also provides information about those who collaborated with the Nazis and those who risked their lives to help the persecuted. Historical documents, photographs, diaries, and letters on display give personal insights into this tragedy.

  • Worst service ever! Got totally wrong starter. Was first not going to change it. Brought me then the main dish before I got the new starter. The main dish stayed at the table all time and got cold. Got the coffee before the dessert! No apologies. I would have given no stars at all but this option was not available! Go somewhere else! I will!!
  • Traditional wooden unremarkable house from outside. Spacious dining place inside. There is second floor. Cosy interior, nice beer. Meals tasty, but pricey. Friendly staff.
  • Very intersting beer they have...Raudonu Plytu or Red Brick
